Motor racing-Hamilton on pole in Austin, Vettel starts…

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct 20 (Reuters) – Lewis Hamilton took a big step towards clinching his fifth Formula One world championship after putting his Mercedes on pole position at the U.S. Grand Prix on Saturday with Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel starting fifth.

The Briton, who will take the title if he scores eight points more than Vettel, will share the front row with the German’s Finnish team mate Kimi Raikkonen.

Vettel, who qualified second on Saturday and just 0.061 slower than Hamilton, has a three-place grid drop after failing to slow sufficiently while red flags were being waved in Friday practice. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Pritha Sarkar)
